‘My parents gave me my first camera at the age of 10. It was at this early age that photography became an escape and my one true form of expression.
My approach is to show the true beauty of the subject, where it demands attention by introducing space and minimising distractions. The simplest of things, when isolated, can represent something beautiful. What we take for granted often seems to be the most important, when I bring attention to these simple elements it can function as a reminder to truly appreciate the finer things that surround us.
It is humbling to be recognised for my photographic style and achievements by Instagram, 500px, EyeEm, Collective Hub, Taxi Mag, Brilliant Mag, Cool Hunter, Blow Up, Olympus, Men In This Town, Feature Shoot, Get Lost Magazine, The 405, Capture Magazine, Life Framer, Australian Photography Awards, Rokeby Gallery, NINE, SBS, Asian Art Group, Australian Photography among others and most importantly my 400,000+ community.
Thank you for being part of the journey, without the support and constant inspiration my passion would simply be a dream.’
Ante Badzim is an Australian photographer who completed his studies in Photography, Photomedia and Photojournalism in the renowned School of Art & Design at the Australian National University in Canberra and Photography Studies College in Melbourne.
Based in Sydney, an award-winning exhibiting artist who fell in love with photography early in life. His journey into photography started when he inherited his parent's camera at the age of 10, which continues to play an important role in his life.
Whether it was at school, or using his family and friends as subjects, taking photos became a passion, a distraction, and a lifeline.
He aims to capture images that showcase a sense of calmness and simplicity, images that cut through the noise of daily life. This is in direct contrast to the obstacles we face, making the images he creates a personal challenge.
Ante is the recipient of several accolades including Top 10 Australian Photography Photographer of the Year 2018, Blow Up Photo Awards Winner, Olympus Global Photo Cup Award, What Touched My Soul Photo Award, Environmental Photo Competition Winner, Fuzzable Photographer of the Year 2018, Life Framer World Travelers Photo Award, Imaging Brand Action Photo Award, What Lies Beneath Photo Quest Runner-Up, Australian Photography Awards Honorable Mention and several Editors’ Choice Awards from the likes of 500px and EyeEm.
